    This is an ignorant statement.

    Eddie wasn't the same after his toe injury causing him to not have the balance he once had and nothing to do with Runyan. He had his best year after Runyan left.....

    Thank you, you sir are a Genius in my book. Cutler maybe in the long run a better QB someday, but right now he has Marshall, who i dont care what anyone says is a top ten receiver now. And Brainfart, oh sorry, Leinart, the guy has Boldin, Fitzgerald, and Edge, not too mention a 6'6+ TE. Man if you cant throw some serious TD's with those guys, you are no QB.

    Vince averaged 6.7 yards per completion. That's within a half yard of every elite QB in the NFL not named Brady (8.3), Peyton (7.8), or Romo (8.1). His average per completion was better than Eli's (6.3) and only .1 yards less than Brees' (6.8).

    Not saying he didn't throw a lot of short balls because he obviously did. But it's not like he averaged 2 yards per completion or anything.

    Stats = Facts, but I guess everyone would rather want Brees or Eli.

    Really, not by a long shot, eddie was a dominate back before runyun left, the toe was just the last straw so to speak.

    I didn't say he averaged 2 yards per completion.

    I said they threw a lot of 2 yard patterns. Does that mean they only gained 2 yards? No. Yards per attempt is not indicative of how far a ball is thrown.

    It is yards passed for divided by attempts. If you throw the ball 60 yards in the air and it is incomplete it is a 0. If you pass for a 2 yard completion and the receiver turns it into a 50 yard play then it counts as 50 yards not 2.

    Most of these short passes ended up gaining a few more yards after the catch.


    If anyone thinks that his completion rate going up isn't due to the fact that our passing game was predominately within 7 or 8 yards of the LoS then you're FOS.

    Yes, by a long shot.

    His best year came after Runyan was gone.

    When he hurt his toe in 2001 he was never the same and that was the demise of his career. That had absolutely nothing to do with Runyan.

    Forget other QB's, Vince's yards per attempt average went from 6.2 his rookie season to 6.7 this last season, but his completion percentage went from 51.5% to 62.3%. Based on those stats, it look like you are the one who is "FOS".

    Something caused him to go from a 3.9ypc back to a 3.4ypc back excluding the 2001 season when he didn't need to be on the field. It doesn't take a lot to go wrong for a back to decline like that.

    As for john runyan he never made a single pro bowl in a decade in the league but titan fans still talk about him as if he was jonathan ogden.
